Fair Game

On Sunday Mom, Dad, me, Patrick, and his mom, Molly, went to the Hennepin County Fair! This was amazing, and Patrick and I had just the best time. I really like spending time with Patrick, he's a good dude. We did all kinds of things. Stuff our parents never thought we'd do!

We started out seeing the world's smallest horse, and trust me, this was one tiny pony. Then I headed over to the see the fire trucks. (You know me and steering wheels.) After I was dragged away from the big trucks, we went to the petting zoo. There were all kinds of animals in there, all of which I didn't pet. But we did get some feed and fed a few goats.

What's a trip to the fair without eating a little. So Dad and Molly decided to start with fresh squeezed lemonade. They each went to a different vendor and had a "Lemonade Off." Sounds like Daddy's won. By the way, when do you think Dippin' Dots will stop being the ice cream of the future? Then of course we got corn dogs, french fries, and mini donuts. The Mid-western lunch of champions. Although I think Mom, Dad, and Molly would've rather been here.

After we were fully full, Patrick and I went on a few rides. I can't believe I'm tall enough! We started out driving Jeeps, then flew around in a UFO, then down the giant slide, and back to the Jeeps. Of course the Jeeps were our favorite, and Patrick proved to be a very safe driver. The carousel was calling our name next. Then we got a little creeped out by a talking pig, but he was pretty cool. No day would be complete without a ride on a train. Choo choo! And then we finished off the day with a little 4-wheelin'!

I can't believe how much fun I'm having in my second year. Everyday is an adventure. Life is good!

Look before you leap,

PS - Shout out to my main man Jerrid! We shared a birthday on Saturday, but we weren't able to be together. Don't feel too bad for him, his lovely wife took him to Yankee Stadium. Why didn't I get to go? And when do I get to go fishing?

1,235 empty calories $35.00, tickets for kiddie rides $15.00, knowing that you can't go into the beer tent cuz they won't let your kid in too-priceless. Looks like a blast. Fun photos.
